The Council today adopted reinforced EU sanctions in view of the situation in Ukraine, following up on the request by the European Council of 16 July and the Foreign Affairs Council of 22 July.

The Council added 15 further persons and 18 entities responsible for action against Ukraine's territorial integrity to the list of those subject to an asset freeze and a visa ban.
This brings the number of persons currently under EU sanctions in connection with the situation in Ukraine to 87 while the number of entities will rise to 20.
